Into the Glen

The Irish Republic’s Charities Regulatory Authority has appointed inspectors to carry out a statutory investigation into GLEN, the Gay and Lesbian Equality Network. Glen announced last week it will close following a review of its operations.

The CRA emphasised that the opening of a statutory investigation is not in itself a finding of any wrongdoing, and the scope of the investigation will include the administration, governance and financial management of the charity by Glen’s trustees and whether charitable assets have been used exclusively for charitable purposes and can be accounted for.
